Sleeping Beauty


Retelling a classic fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm with bright illustrations and a clever tone. 

The story of Sleeping Beauty is told here with simplicity and charm. Sixteen years after an angry fairy casts this spell, the princess pricks her finger on a spindle and the entire kingdom falls asleep — until one hundred years later a handsome prince rides up to the thorn-covered castle, awakens them all, and happily marries the beautiful girl.

The stories in the Classic Fairy Tales series have been adapted for children today while respecting the richness and flavor of the original versions. The small size of the books and their warm, inviting illustrations will appeal to children, who will also love the game page at the end of each book and will want to read all the books in the series.
